Benchmarks - Sequential and Mixed Workloads


Our Sequential read/write workload is centered on 1MB transfer sizes; again, with sixteen threads, and a Queue Depth of eight.




Starting off with RAID 0, we found the 451 actually took the lead with performance topping 113 MB/s read, and 101 MB/s write.




Moving to RAID 5, the TS-451 stayed on top with 118 MB/s read, and 110 MB/s write.




RAID 10 had the TS470 fighting back, but the TS-451 rose to the challenge once more, and turned in 118 MB/s read, and 113 MB/s write.



Mixed Workloads




Mixed workloads allowed the TS 470 to take over, thanks to its extra muscle in terms of processing power. Even so, the TS-451 didn't back down, and turned in 189 IOPs in workstation, and 182 IOPS in OLTP.




Moving to RAID 5, the TS-451 stepped it up, and pulled out 1104 IOPS in OLTP; that is nearly 800 more than the TS-470.




RAID 10 showed similar results, but at the same time, I am still questioning them myself, even despite the fact I have gone back three times to confirm.
